Miniature Dinosaurs – debut album

Miniature Dinosaurs’ album “In The Spirit Of Everything” is out now via all the usual download stores and streaming sites.

We released the single “Lemonade” and the “Turn It On” EP by this fantastic Scottish 4-piece back in 2012, with great reviews from the likes of Artrocker and Indie London and radio support from Q, Amazing Radio and tons of regional stations across the UK and beyond.

After a couple of great UK tours and with support from Creative Scotland, the guys returned to fabled Beetroot Studios in Airdrie with producer Stuart MacLeod to record their debut album.

The official track-listing is:

Library
Zambia
French Kissing
All of the Lights
Lip Sync
Alligator
In The Spirit of Everything
Show Me Love
F.L.Y.
Lemonade
I’ll Save You (For Anyone Else)
Next of Kin

Sadly, the guys have decided to disband, so the Mini Dinos will once again be extinct, but they were keen for their first and final album to see the light of day so self-released it on 18th August 2014.

We’ve been lucky enough to have had the album for the last few months and it’s a cracker, so treat yourself and grab yourself a copy now.

“A phenomenal synth-rock experience featuring brooding instrumentals and haunting vocal performances”         The CD Critic

“A very promising band trying and succeeding at something really quite hard to execute”
Alex Baker – Kerrang! Radio

“Silhouettes might just have released one of the singles of the year”  Louder Than War

“I love Gold Tag”      Jack Parker – Amazing Radio

“Atmospherically beautiful”     Listen With Monger

“Thumping electronica with mind bending rock-out pieces and falsetto vocals. Not to be missed!”
RipitUp!

Influenced by the likes of John Grant, Massive Attack and Bon Iver, Silhouettes’ debut album twists and turns from haunting pin-drop falsetto sparseness to crunching post-punk guitars and pumping Moroder-esque electro with a beat and swagger to match their fashionable B-Town neighbours.

Songwriter/vocalist Nathan came across the title ‘Ever Moving Happiness Machines’ in an Adam Curtis documentary, The Century of the Self, which described how Freudian philosophy was used by the U.S. Government to convert society into consumers:

“I think the title ties the album together well. The songs are mostly about the awakening of the self within a society obsessed with the vacuous ends of consumerism. The epiphany leads to a transformation of the self through a pursuit of deeper, more natural truths about happiness.”

Horse Party got together after a night spent drinking in a church. Ellie Langley, Seymour Quigley and Shannon Hope were united in a love of Bjork, Savages, Daughter and terrible movies.

During 2013 they played 50+ gigs with support slots including Tunng, Pinkunoizu, Shonen Knife, Heartless Bastards, Ghostpoet, The Nightingales, Vuvuvultures and Dingus Khan, and a live broadcast via BBC Introducing from the new John Peel Centre for Creative Arts.

Horse Party signed to Integrity in October. The release of single ‘What Do You Need’ in November (played by Amazing Radio and XFM), rounded off their busy 2013.

“Brilliant … the pale, dead hand of Patti Smith on the tiller and the pop nous of XTC”Unpeeled

“Cohesive, brazen and delightfully noisy” – Bearded Magazine

“Sounding like The White Stripes playing Fugazi covers with Beth Ditto”God Is In The TV

The band grew out of Bury St Edmunds’ thriving music scene. Bury was little more than a sleepy Suffolk town with a Tory constituency until restrictions on live music were lifted in the 90s and touring bands started playing the town. An exciting punk and DIY scene emerged with kids including Ellie, Seymour and Shannon picking up instruments and getting noticed by the nation. Not only did John Peel pronounce it ‘The New Seattle’, but the town came second in Rolling Stone’s culture capital of the year list in 2002. Really.

The scene disintegrated for a few years but its second wave is coming with full force. Along with their own music, Horse Party run a monthly club night called Washing Machine at The Hunter Club, a label to support other Suffolk musicians and a Riot Grrrl-inspired fanzine called ‘Shut The Fuck Up’ which they hand out free at gigs.

In a recent interview with Q Magazine, Seymour said: “we’re running three or four nights a month and I can’t keep up with the number of people wanting to play. We get 15 year-olds talking to us about Devo, Fugazi, Talking Heads and Melvins plus early 90s hip-hop, and referencing those bands in their music.”

Horse Party are a band who have naturally tapped into music’s power to stir a stagnant mentality – as such their upcoming album is a harmony of raw, lo-fi expression and liberating rock-your-cares-away hooks. More than anything else though, Seymour describes Horse Party as “the most fun I’ve ever had with other humans”.
